Apple Arugula Salad

Prep Time:

Cook Time:

This October, my garden was filled with suprises as it felt like I was constantly discovering new things growing, some of them being arugula, apples, and the pomegranates finally started to ripen. And with just these three ingredients, I knew they would make the perfect fall salad that I didn't know I was craving! With the seasons changing and leaves falling, I decided to create a farm to table experience for some of my friends and that this salad would be the perfect starter to the evening. I am not typically an arugula fan, but I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved it along with the combination of adding the apple and pomegranate along with the balsamic. Because I wanted to use only from what was from my garden for the farm to table experience, this recipe popped up on Pinterest and although it originally called for spinach and feta which I ommitted, I felt this salad was absolutely what I was looking for and wonderfully surprising! Please enjoy!
